Division of Civilian Oversight

The Division of Civilian Oversight is an independent agency where civilians lead investigations on police incidents that directly impact St. Louisans and their neighbors.

The Division of Civilian Oversight reviews complaints, which can be filed in-person or online, for police misconduct and force incidents, and has subpoena power to all legally permissible information and access to city jails to investigate the complaints. The Civilian Oversight Board and the Detention Facilities Board set the goals for the Division and measure their progress through an annual report.

The Board's function is to review and investigate citizen complaints against alleged misconduct of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

Detention Facilities Oversight Board
